Over the pass few weeks I’ve been playing around with the Android powered JXD s7800b Gamepad and I can report back that this handheld machine can run OutRun (The arcade version) perfectly.
The JXD was build for games and especially retro games, it has all of the right buttons and controls in the places you would find retro consoles and modern day consoles too.
There are 4 versions of arcade emulation currently on the JXD, 2 versions through an app called Retroarch , Mame4All and Mame4Droid. The Android version of Mame4All when tested was the only version to play the game perfectly.
On top of having the perfect arcade port there are lots of other options if your an OutRun fan too.
Probably the next best version would be a toss up between the Gameboy Advance and PC Engine.
Below is the GBA version from SEGA Arcade Gallery.
Next up is the PC Engine version running through the App PCE.EMU.
If your a big fan of other sprite scaling racers this machine will also delight. Below are some of the other great Yu Suzuki , SEGA or Sprite Scaler games that I have enjoyed using this machine.

Virtua Racing 32X (RetroArch – PicoDrive)
